  • Which Nelson Rigg tank bag?

    I'm looking for a small tank bag that does not hide the Kat's instruments cluster.
    I've settled on a Nelson Rigg but I am hesitating between these two models:

    Classic CL-300: http://www.nelsonrigg.com/pages/Spor.../CL300-Big.htm
    Classic black look, can contain 8.11 liters, sure it won't get in the way. Could it be too small?

    Or

    Silver Streak SSC-100: http://www.nelsonrigg.com/pages/Spor...SSC110-Big.htm
    Nice black and silver look, can contain 11.50 liters, hope it's not too tall.
    Could be more practical.

    There's only a 10$ difference on New Enough so price is not a factor.

    What's your opinion/preference?

    The SSC-100 was nice when I had it on my 84 Honda Sabre, the magnetic holders covered up some tank blemishes nicely! To be honest, the one thing I used on it the most was the shoulder strap, very handy.

    Great bag, good quality for the price too! I would recommend the SSC-100!

      I would go with the icon urban...just from personal experience. Doesnt block cluster, and allows over 1 days worth of clothes, extra pair of shoes and a clear top window zipper for directions!

        Out of those two I've got the CL-300. I also have a couple other Nelson Rigg bags. Either one, you can't go wrong, Neslon Rigg make an awesome product !!!
        Some people are a lot like Slinkys.
        Not really good for anything, but bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

          I have the 10 liter Cortech and it doesn't block sight to my dash on a 06 600 kat. I use this more then my tail bag. I really like the clear map pocket on the top as my Blackberry fits very well in it when I'm using the built in GPS.

            Out of those 2 bags, I would probably go with the larger 110 bag. 6" tall shouldn't block the panel enough to worry about, and it looks like you could fit a bit more in it if you decided you needed to on a longer ride. Might be able to fit a sweatshirt or something in it along with some soda or water bottles, where the other bag wouldn't have enough room. I have a bag that's similar size to the 300 you posted, and it works fine for a short day ride with one person, but when the wife goes with me I always need more room, or she gets stuck wearing a backpack. I just picked up this a few weeks ago, http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/cata...-p-145_31.html it definetly blocks the guages it both bags are on, but I have the option of using just one bag at a time zipped to the magnetic base. The smaller top bag is just about perfect for most rides, but when I get ready to go away for weekend or longer rides, the extra room will be nice.

              Neither will block your view of the gauges. I'd go for more space, personally. Check out the JR Manta XL. I went that direction, even though I have Nelson Rigg SSC tail and saddlebags. Cheaper and there's lots of room.
